Elijah was God's prophet to the Northern Kingdom of Israel. His story is one of the most intriguing stories in the Bible.

We have all heard people claim to speak for God. We have heard people claim to have heard God speak to them. The Bible is full of such stories. It speaks of many prophets, or spokesmen, for God. It also speaks of false prophets and those who would claim a word from God, when that word in not one that comes from God.

Let me introduce to you the three main characters. These are three of the most familiar characters in all of the Old Testament. First of all Ahab, who is the king of Israel. He is described for us in chapter 16, verse 30, when we are told that he did evil above all the kings that were before him. R. G. Lee, the great preacher of...
